I have Sabian AA 14" hats. I play them on the stand that came with Rockstar Custom kits a couple years ago.
I find that the 'chick' I get when I close my hats together isn't as good as it could be. It seems like they're trapping a lot of air and I feel a lot of air being moved out of the hats.
How can I go about getting the best hit hat sound? Should I tilt the bottom hat at all?
Also, is the sound affected by the felts? Should I get new felts? Should I get thinner felts?
